Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome Causes
Most obstructive sleep apnea are caused by the muscle tone decrease,
brain injury, the structure of the features that result in narrow airway,
increasing soft tissue in the passage airway which may result from obesity,
and old age. Muscle tone decrease is caused by alcohol, neurological
problems, or drugs.
Snoring is the vibration of the upper passage airways tissues.
The muscles and nerves found in pharynx are local lesions (nerve).
Long-term vibration exposure may cause lesions in parts of the body,
in the same way, long-term snoring may induce nerve lesions in the pharynx.
